Fast Lane

Fast Lane to the Labour Market

The repercussions of the unstable situation in the Middle East and the ongoing war in Syria since 2011 have been felt ever more strongly in Europe, too. The high number of refugees from those areas of conflict, entering EU member states on a daily basis, proposes a challenge to all of society’s institutions. Most of those asylum seekers will most likely be granted asylum status, meaning they will not return to their countries of origin any time soon. Accordingly, the question has to be asked how to integrate them into society and the labour market.

The “Fast Lane to the Labour Market” project offers an innovative approach for the problem of integrating refugees into the labour market as described above with its approach being both integrative and co-operational, based on the principles of Work-based learning (WBL), ECVET as well as content and language integrated learning (CLIL) to shorten the time span from the refugees’ arrival until the point of entrance intothe labour market because it combines the acquisition of language skills, social and cultural integration as well as vocational qualification.
